The former Deligat Chapel, a slab building thatched with grass, was erected by the Campbell's on their property at Deligat. Although it was erected on private property, it would appear to have been open to others. It was erected prior to 1847. The site is identified in the current Delegate Cemetery, and marked by a stone shelter over a stone marker. The local Church Creek, beside the cemetery, acknowledges the earlier existence of the small church. More historical information of the former chapel/congregation are invited.
